...This line was dedicated to something else altogether. "Police surveillance. It will pick up signals from police-operated aircraft. Which are sorta like manned drones."

Merritt and McClure have been together for 20 years and married for the last seven, most of which they spent abroad while McClure was managing Peace Corps operations in Botswana and Morocco.

Cheers!
